I have tried to search with no avail on ths topic. I have a 8300 that is currently loaded on the computer with Desktop Manager. My wife just got the 8100 and I want to also put her on the same computer with Desktop Manager so she can add themes, etc. How is this done. If it helps I have windows XP.

Thanks

You would download and install, to your computer, her OS that is currently on her 8100.

Where do I download her OS. She is running 4.2. I went to Blackberry.com and only see desktop manager or device manager. Please help.

MrKyoo, when I click on the link for the OS you sent me it sends me to a Desktop Manager download link. Is the Desktop MAnager and the OS the same thimg?

No, they're two different things. Click the down arrow on the blackberry site, choose the device you're downloading the OS for and then click next. Then scroll down a little and click download for the OS you want (it's probably the one right under the next button). Fill out your information, confirm, next. Scroll down and agree. Click download

I would recommend that you and your wife use different profiles on the operating system. That way, when either of you logs on you will only see data relevant to your device.
Start --> Control Panel --> "Add remove user accounts"
